To be believable and human-likes, 3 dimensional (3D) virtual humans need to have goals, emotions as well as interact naturally and reasonably with their environment. They also could be capable to express their behaviour in a manner appropriate to the level of emotion they are expressing, like human do. lf a synthetically generated character fails to express the required suitable emotional expression, it will most likely to break users' suspension of disbelief. 3D virtual humans are used rather than video of real person because this research is driven by the need to animate virtual humans' body movement. Thus to study on the believability of the virtual human. The context of this study is to search for the realism and believability of virtual humans that can produce animated body movement. The animation sequence techniques that have been explored are Inverse Kinematics (IK) or Forward Kinematics (FK) and Key Frame Interpolation (KFI). Malaysian culture was adapted in this research to provide initial guidelines for the local developers to create 30 animation regarding Malaysian manner of body expression. The research was focused on animate a 30 human characters that suitable for any age groups. The animated story is about a community advice that tells about how important to be polite and respect to each other.
